Ghana is a tropical paradise, with waterfalls wherever you turn, rolling mountains and pristine white beaches. It is home to more historic forts and castles than any other African nation, a throwback to its tumultuous history of colonisation and slavery. Ghana is also the perfect introduction to the African continent and is known as ‘the gateway to Africa’. It is surprising that there are not more visitors given the countries decades of democracy, welcoming people, stunning golden coastline, rich, colourful, vibrant culture, ethnic diversity, distinct history, tropical rainforests, rolling hills and exceptional flora and fauna.

With our local partner being an expert in Ghana’s rich culture and traditions, we can help you plan a tour through the history of the powerful Ashanti Empire. Alternatively, our small group tours help you see the best of the country on an itinerary designed by travel professionals based in Accra and led by local guides who will introduce you to the best of Ghana.

If heritage and history are your reason for travelling, then the moving memorials to the tragic slave trade era are a must visit. Educational and emotional at the same time, the memorials can be found across Ghana and are recognised as UNESCO World Heritage sites. The ancient mosques and traditional Islamic communities of the drier and less populated north contrast with the more developed and lush tropical climate of southern Ghana. For any traveller looking to discover Ghana’s nature then you will not be disappointed. There are opportunities to view elephants in Mole National Park or to visit Kakum National Park where you can explore and if lucky, find primates and pangolins in the rainforest. Birds and butterflies abound, and for the more active, Ghana offers exceptional hiking, mountain biking and ecotourism opportunities.
